Yes, I suspect I'll drag this out for at least another week or two.
To recap, here are my samples in order:
This is the wide point lace from Victorian Lace Today, and the ruler along the top is for scale (the edging is 8" from side to side at the top).
This is a chunk of an edging called Normandy Lace from http://www.knitting-and.com/ . I like this one, and the more I look at it the more I like it. I'm just worried that it's too open for an edging.
This is my attempt at combining the motif above as insertion, with a border from Victorian Lace Today. It's less than successful because I elongated the center motif and don't like it as much, plus I've got too many disparate elements going. It has some possibilities, but not as it is. It's sitting on a standard 8.5" x 11" piece of paper, just to give you a feel for how big it is.
And here's today's attempt. This one is WAAAAY too lacy and open for an edging, although I do love it. It, too, is on a standard 8.5" x 11" piece of paper.
I have a few more ideas, but I think I'm going to take a brief break from this project and let things percolate in my brain.
Thanks to everyone who commented on the new look for my blog!
